Hello! I’m looking to hire a manga/comic artist to help me with my idea. I'll pay with 30 (I apologize, I don't have much). If you are interested, here’s a bit of information!
The name of my comic is Train Tracks. I don’t intend it to be very long… probably like a oneshot… oh, and yeah. It’s a girls love/yuri/lesbian/gay/queer/shoujo ai/whatever you people call it story. Please don’t rattle on about it… just X out if you’re not into it, and continue reading if you are! So the storyline is pretty simple, actually...
Two young women met for the first time when they were children. One was a daring prankster with polka dotted freckles, the other a quiet loner who read too much. For six years, the two have been inseparable. At least, until one moved. Eight years passed and the unlikely pair meet again at a subway station. Old memories, old feelings, etc etc etc. You get the point.
I want it to sort of switch between the past and the present, too. It’s not going to be very long anyways, so I really want to focus on conveying how these two feel.
Here’s a bit of a brief description of the two girls:
Jade: Out of high school and still completely unsure of what she wants in life, quiet Jade Park is a struggling writer dying to get her big break, but too timid to actually go out and get it. She keeps her hair short, and sometimes she wonders if it’s too short, but doesn’t really do anything about it. She’s simple and seemingly boring on the outside, but has a wild imagination and many passions. Raised by Korean immigrant parents, the idea of success has been pushed onto her since very young. She is torn between continuing to pursue her writing, and living up to her parent’s expectations.
Birdie: A proud young woman living life on the fast line. With bright orange hair and a just as bright personality - Birdie Patterson spends most of her time exploring and going on adventures. She doesn’t care much about her appearance. Polka dot skirts with socks and sandals? Torn leather jacket paired with fancy business trousers? She’s done it all. She makes her money doing what she loves the most. Outgoing and friendly, and way too easy to please - cheerful Birdie was raised by open-minded parents that taught her to get the best out of life.
And that’s pretty much it for the story and plot… oh, and the setting is in New York by the way (the state, not the city). Uh… yeah.
I would really appreciate someone who has experience in drawing manga or comics (though, it doesn’t matter. it’s my first time anyways.) I think the way it’s done is I do the rough draft (which will look horRIBLE) and you do the final? I don’t know. Everything I’ve learned about the comic business is from Bakumon I’m sorry. I do plan on posting it here, but also a site called tapastic. It’s a great site that’s specifically based for comic artists (and yes, you can get supported financially too! if money is a big thing for you, then no worries. good comics earn good money… and i really do hope this is a good comic).
I don’t put pressure on deadlines or anything, because I get it. Just go at any pace you please. Thank you for reading til the end! Just comment or send me a note… or contact me through my Tapastic account (tapastic.com/soapig). i would like to be able to get a taste of your work by the way, especially if you’ve done comics before. More information about the story will be given later on. You can find the current roughs on my sta.sh (sta.sh/2luyd7k74xz) (not very many, but i figured it'd be nice to start now just to keep my creativity going). I am always open to other's ideas, because this is a collaboration. Questions or advice is always appreciated and welcomed. Again, thank you for checking this out. Hope to be working with you soon!
